Coming and going


At the back there are some buildings of the substation, where electricity distribution is managed in our part of the country's national grid. Some of the lines are incoming and others carry switched electricity to satisfy demand.

Attractive in a Industriscape manner, Louis.

If it is AC current then I am a little confused about you description of coming and going... smile
Louis: Thank you Ray. About AC - consider this: "AC stands for “Alternating Current,” meaning voltage or current that changes polarity or direction, respectively, over time." Depending on where you are situated in this scenario - coming and going, describes it.

On dirait de grands oiseaux avec le bec ouvert.
Louis: Ils me font penser à des lézards dangereux de Jurassic Park. Merci Martine.
This could only be presented in B&W... Great job!
Louis: Heh, that is true. In a colour picture, only the grass will be of a colour, other than shades of b&w.
They are the bane of a landscape photographers life here, Louis. I like this shot though.
Louis: Thank you Frank. It becomes a bane, because your eye sees it and your brain ignores the pylons - or should I say, a human can look beyond pylons. The camera cannot and faithfully records. The human becomes disgusted because (s)he saw it differently. When I view my pictures on the PC monitor, I often see things like power lines, that I missed while being on site.

And what an assortment of designs, Louis
Louis: I found it interesting and have no idea whether there is any meaning behind those differences.
i think the power pylons are staying, Louis. very effective in black and white!
Louis: Thank you Ayush - the electricity runs around the country, while the pylons stand there looking like frozen Tyrannosaurus Rex.

What an amazing sight this is Louis!
Louis: Lots of movement, that one doesn't see, Chris.
WOW! That's one connected place, Louis!
Louis: Connected on higher echelons, so to speak.

A great play of lines and I am intrigued by the 'beauty' of the tall masts with only 'arm' at one side...
Great B&W.
Louis: They look like something from Jurassic Park, Astrid.

a fantastic image with this treatment!
Louis: Thank you Philine.
A mess of wire.
Louis: So it is, Mary.
Some people actually like power lines. These are at least interesting shapes!
Louis: Maybe it is the variety of shapes that makes it interesting - but I agree - they are interesting.
It looks like a tangled web of wires and pylons doesn't it.
Louis: Yes, I am glad someone, somewhere has a map of it all, Brian.
Nothing much happening, visibly, on the outside Louis, but imagine the frenetic movement of electrons within these wires.
Louis: Lots of movement, that one doesn't see, gutteridge.

Great image- I love the lines and patterns.
Louis: Thank you Beth, so did I.
One of the less appealing sights of industrialisation!
Louis: One of those things, one can't do a lot about, Tom. Just try to take good pictures of it smile
this is a great shot of power to the people Louis...
the towers on the left remind me of baby birds in the nest mouth wide open... waiting for their parents to feed them....petersmile
Louis: Thank you, peter. Power to them, indeed. These power lines are the end of life for many birds. The authorities have now developed a kind of sensor with which to study the bird strikes. Maybe those pylons you refer to symbolizes the chicks of parent birds, left behind after losing the parent(s). smile
